Having problems with your Dyson DC14 All floors Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum ?

I can barely push the vacuum forward and there is noise

\015 I just bought this DC 14 all floors today. We put it together and as soon as I try to push it forward it makes a horrible loud noise. It also takes all I have to push it. I am using two hands and putting all of my weight in it. It is picking up great but there is no way I can vacuum even one room let alone my whole house at one time.\015

Dyson design to help save belt so its not destroyed when brush grabs. its the clutch you \015\012hear very annoying and scary lol .it should move very easily forward almost pull itself in \015\012carpet mode the way the brush rotates, unless the you hear the clutch its \015\012grabbing the carpet or an obstruction and hard to push at that point. I have the same model works ok but over \015\012priced decent warranty. had same problems don't think you can adjust it(clutch) or the wheel \015\012height.brush will wear out a bit after some good hard use then it wont clutch so much \015\012but because its not brushing as much = less pickup . Dyson will tell you is not \015\012the vac like most companies but it is .
This one tends to just push cheerios M&Ms and stuff \015\012like that like a snowplow instead of vac it up. pain in the but. next vacuum i \015\012will do homework and go with my wife to buy a vac. my suggestion look at all \015\012features of diff vacs maybe buy 2 or 3 dif ones take em home and give them the \015\012real test!! not on the smooth carpet floor at the sales room floor. on kids mess and real stuff on the floor. Take back ones that are not \015\012working for you. with receipt you have prob 30 days no questions. this model \015\012has some good and bad features like the rest. some are louder some are \015\012quieter. i doo like the easy way to empty it but many are like that now. I have gotten rid of most of carpets now have mostly hardwoods i intalled in house now too hard to clean kids destroy them carpets with Pbj, nailpolish and markers,juice etc plus carpets just harbor all that dirt ndust

Try ajusting the height of the wheels.

My Bissell Proheat 12 amp is hard to push forward(whether on or off). There is a loud clicking noise when pushing forward and it ''jumps'' up on every loud click. It's OK when pulling backwards, sprays and vacuums up water. Belt appears OK. Thanks

Hi, I have a Sebo X4 which is almost 3 years old. I haven't had any problems with it until the last couple of days when I notice a slight screeching noise when in upright position, coming from the roller mechanism area. If I slightly push the sebo forwards it gets worse, if I tip it back it stops. If I take the roller out and switch on, there is no noise. I have always been careful not to tip the machine forwards when using the hose, but I recently lent it to a friend whose hoover had broken do

Loud noise I have a brand new Dyson and it is great on all my floors except one of my area rugs when it starts making this really loud vibrating noise. I am not sure why - nothing is stuck in the roller or vacuum and it doesn't make it on any of my other rugs. Also it is really hard to push whereas all the other floors it just glides. I don't want to return it but I also don't want to hear this sound every time I vacuum.

This is the clutch as it jams up in the brush. Usually happens with rugs that are not secured to the floor. ... Dyson DC14 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

I have a dyson canniter stow away vacuum. i've had it for 2 years and it just started having a problem. when i turn it on the motor starts just fine but the vacuum head does not turn on. Yet when i push it forward it trys to start and turns on for a second and turn off - almost like the connector isn't connecting the hose to the head very well anymore.

Hi, After reading you're problem, the symptom's are just like you said. Its just a matter of checking the connections. The connection where it plugs into the head it self. When you push forward the forward motion and down pressure makes ... Dyson "Stowaway" Canister Vacuum Vacuum

G-5 Kirby self-propel works intermitently. The handle must be jiggled until it engages forward. The same for reverse. Once underway it will continue indefinitely until the need to change direction. Jiggle go forward,jiggle go in reverse. It seems as though it helps to push the handle at an angle to the left depressing the switch on the left side at the base of the vacuum head.

Sounds like a loose wire, the wire is connected to the handle, you may be able to fix this yourself but be careful you can void the warranty by doing it your self. (most people make the problem worse) remember your kirby has a lifetime warranty (limi ... Kirby Ultimate G Bagged Upright Vacuum

The power goes off and on when using my vacuum. When I push my vacuum forward, intermittently it loses power.

Almost certainly there's a broken wire within the electric flex. This usually happens where there's most bending and pulling - that is, where the flex enters the machine or where it enters the plug. You'll need to get someone to either shorten the fl ... Vacuums

Greetings - my Dyson DC41 animal vacuum seems to be having problems with the ball - the right side of the ball if you were to be standing behind the machine seems like it's tightening as it rolls forward, as it tightens its harder to push the machine forward. Any thoughts, any fix it ideas? Thank you.

I removed the filter from the motor in the ball. After I cleaned it and let it dry, I put it back in. From then on, it makes a moaning noise when I turn it off after I vacuum. I followed directions to clean it and put it back (it's pretty straight forward and fool proof). I've since cleaned the filter a second time, doing the same steps and it seems to have made it worse.

I have a self propelled Royal Dirt Devil vacuum model number 087900 and it goes backward fine but forward has to be pushed so hard it's impossible. Is this a switch? Do you know about how much the part would cost and can it be done by a beginner. We fix a lot of things ourselves but we aren't mechanics by no means. We put a brand new belt on it. I don't think it can be put on backwards and brush turns fine. Where is the switch? Use layman's terms.

You might try a new belt and/or brush roll. The brush roll is what helps pull a vacuum forward, the power drive helps, but if the brush isn't turning like it should, then it will hinder forward motion. The belt may look ok, but they stretch to the ... Vacuums

When i am vacuuming my carpet....it sucks the dirt up when i am pushing it forward, but when i pull it back, the dirt comes back out on the carpet

This is due to a loss of suction. The roller brush sweeps the dirt to the hose area, but with no suction, when you pull the vacuum back, the brush just kicks the dirt back out. This is most likely due to a clog in part of the hose system.\015 ... Vacuums

I recently ( approx. 2-3 months ago ) purchased a dirt devil. Now it is not picking up properly.

Lately, my Kirby Ultimate G has been acting funny. When I push it forward, it's fine, but when I pull it backward on the carpet, the light on the front flickers and the power flutters off an on. I thought it might be the rollers, so tonight I turned the machine over and pulled out the hair that was wrapped around the roller. However, that did not fix the problem. I should probably backtrack a little bit. In the past, I have had problems with the vacuum running over its own power cord.

The cord will need to be replaced with a cord made for the machine, as it has a non-standard plug. The cord cover is held in place with a # 20 Torx screw. Remove the screw and push the cover gently from behind to unlatch it. The handle must also be r ... Kirby Ultimate G Bagged Upright Vacuum
